This process actually took 3 tries to resolve. Read the entire article it may save you money.
Before each trial I shut off the water and unplugged the refrigerator.
Trial 1
I went to the website and chose the part that had the highest percentage of resolution (78%), which was the actual icemaker. I followed the direction that another person described in detail how to replace. It was easy but it wasn’t the solution. It took me 15 minutes to switch out using a screwdriver and a nut-driver. Turned on the water and plugged the refrigerator in. However, after doing so I still had no ice.
Trial 2
Next, I tried replacing the small water pump that pumps water up to the ice maker. The part is called
the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. Here again on the premise that it was the next highest percentage part to fix my problem. I replaced this part in about 15 minutes with an adjustable wrench and a knife. This time a turned on the refrigerator and water squirted out of the plastic hose that feeds into ice maker’s water feed tube. Still no ice.
Trial 3
The last part to replace was the water feed tube which is a vinyl tube that extends from the outside back of the refrigerator to the ice maker. I read that if water shoots out of the plastic hose that attaches to the “Water Feed Tube” is most likely frozen. So, I replace the “Water Feed Tube”. I disconnected the plastic hose in the back and took some pliers and pulled the “Water Feed Tube” out from the back. It was frozen solid. I cut the new “Water Feed Tube” to the same length and inserted it into the back of the refrigerator. I will most like not go in all the way until you guide it in to the icemaker from inside the freezer. I used some good clear silicone caulk around the outside of the “Water Feed Tube” and attached the plastic hose to it with a small clamp. I was done in about 15 minutes. I plugged in the refrigerator and I let the caulk fully dry for 24 hours. Then I turned on the water. Within the hour I had ice. Finally!
What I determined was the “Water Feed Tube” froze up and caused the “Double Outlet Water Valve” to fail. So, it was necessary to replace both but not the ice maker. What happens in the process of making ice is as the ice maker cycles it calls for water from the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. You should first check to see if the “Water Feed Tube” is frozen. Remove it, use a hair dryer to thaw it out. Reinsert it and re-clamp it to the plastic hose. If that doesn’t resolve your problem or you find that it wasn’t filled with ice, make sure the “Double Outlet Water Valve” is pumping water to the ice maker. If it is, then, replace the ice maker. If it isn’t, replace the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. In other words, don’t go on the percentages. Go on the cheapest.

Bottom freezer was making constant grinding noises, then stopped making ice altogether. I researched the Amanda site, read the customer feedback info and instructions to replace the ice maker. We've been fortunate to have had no ice maker issues for this Amana unit for ten years! The fridge and fre

Ice maker was leaking water into ice container, causing ice jam of scroll

Changing the ice maker was easy as per video instructions. I did not shut down power during replacement. The new unit started making ice within an hour or so, however, the next morning, liquids on the refrigerator top shelf were freezing up! I lowered the frig temp set point one number, but the top shelf continued to freeze. My son had had a similar experience, and he suggested turning power off to the unit for several minutes. I turned off the breaker for about 15 minutes, then back on. The top shelf freezing problem cleared up, and everything started working like it should!

Natural door closer and lower hinge pin worn out

  • Customer: Sylvia from Roxboro NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Did all of work without removing door. Door is approximately 2 1/2" off floor, so shim door with a piece of two by four and wood shims to hold door level while removing bolts. Had mirror lying on floor underneath the hinge to see location of bolts. Removed 3 bolts that hold the metal bracket. After removing the bracket the pin slides out. Then remove another bolt from the door closer, this enables the old closer to be removed. Then replace new closer with one bolt. Slide hinge pin back in place making sure tab is toward refrigerator to line up with hole in metal bracket. Replace metal bracket with bolts. Tools used were 1/4" drive ratchet, 1/4" drive 3" extension and a 1/4" drive 5/16 " socket

After receiving the new ice maker assembly I placed the new part next to the old one to see what I needed to transfer from the old to the new. After removing the wiring harness and a few small parts, I placed them on the new assembly. After that it was a snap which timewise took about 15 minutes. I am pleased to say the ice hopper is full and being replenished very efficiently.

1. Prepare the new ice maker by installing the bail cut off from old unit and installing the wiring harness from old ice maker. 2. Turn off the freezer unit only and turn off water supply. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the ice maker to the plug in back of freezer compartment. Remove the three (3) screws holding ice maker in place. Placed the cap from old unit to new ice maker. 4. Plug the electrical connector to the plug in back of freezer. Attached new unit with the three screws. Place bail in on position and turn the freezer and water on, ice made in circa 3 hours (without leaking I might add :)

I watched the instructional video included with the shipping date e-mail(about 3 minutes long), and simply followed the instructions. It took about 2 days for the refrigirator section to return to normal cool temperature to the level set.

I accessed the model with the model number, isolated the part and ordered it online. Very simple procedure and great online interface to identify the part. On receiving the part I disconnected the water line, followed the instructions to remove the bracket and then the valve. Re-attached the new valve and replaced the bracket. Attached the water supply and tested the valve. Once it all worked fine I moved the refrigerator back into position.

Loud, non-rythmic clicking noise shortly after the compressor comes on, continuing for several seconds.

Replaced the "Run Capacitor. The non-rythmic clicking associated with the compressor coming on continues. The problem was obviously not the Run Capacitor". I don't know what to do next. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Phillip
